In terms of his bread and butter as a street brawler and youtube sensation, Kevin ‘Kimbo Slice’ Ferguson is a legitimate beast. What we’ve learned over the years though, is that it takes more than the ability to punch people in the face to become a professional MMA fighter. After a professional debut in an ‘exhibition’ match against Ray Mercer in 2007, Slice went on to fight in the totally legitimate Elite XC promotion, scoring wins over a 300 year old Tank Abbot, a deaf James Thompson and Bo Cantrell, whoever the hell that is.
His follow up fight with Seth Petruzelli was not suspicious at all, as Slice went down like a tree in under a minute and got paid a serious butt-load of money for doing so. Obviously the UFC saw the potential in Slice, allowing him to not only compete on the Ultimate Fighter where he would get suffocated by Roy Nelson’s gut, but also giving him two fights in the UFC where he would go 1-1 against Houston Alexander and Matt Mitirone respectively. The fact he actually has wins is what keeps Kimbo from being in the upper echelons of the list.
Watch Kimbo get ruined by Petruzelli, a lot like how he dealt with the 51 year-old Ken Shamrock at Bellator 138….
